Perhaps http://mathworld.wolfram.com/PolyhedralGraph.html is useful to you? There is also a Notebook available for download from this page. Also George W. Hart <george at georgehart.com> uses Mathematica and is the author of a number of papers (and code) that may be of use to you, e.g. http://www.georgehart.com/solid-edge/solid-edge.html Cheers, Paul _______________________________________________________________________ Paul Abbott Phone: 61 8 6488 2734 School of Physics, M013 Fax: +61 8 6488 1014 The University of Western Australia (CRICOS Provider No 00126G) AUSTRALIA http://physics.uwa.edu.au/~paul
